Horror and Mystery Radio Shows work so well because Radio is a medium of imagination. TV and films show the viewer what he should be scared of, but they show what the producer finds frightening. The author of a book or other printed story can better stimulate the reader's imagination but still has to overcome the limitations of the written word.
